A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Parameter of rectangle equal parameter of triangle?

I hope you want to know the Perimeter. Perimeter is the total length of the boundary of the region bounded by a shape. For a rectangle it is the sum of the 4 bounding sides, or 2*(L+B), where L is Length of the rectangle and B is Breadth of the rectangle. For a Triangle it is the sum of the 3 sides. If you consider an equilateral triangle. By property the 3 sides of an equilateral triangle are equal. Hence the Perimeter of an equilateral triangle is denoted as; 3*a, where a is the length of one of the sides of the triangle. It is possible that the perimeter of a rectangle is same as that of many different types of triangles. We can formulate a relationship for a special case where the perimeter of a rectangle is equal to the perimeter of an equilateral triangle; P(R) = P(ET), P(R) is perimeter of rectangle and P(EQ) is perimeter of Equilateral triangle. P(R)=2(L*B) = P(EQ) = 3*a; hence, a = (2/3)*(L*B) = P(R)/3. i.e., the sides of the Equilateral triangle are one thirds of the perimeter of the rectangle.

Which of the squares has an area that is equal to its perimeter?

A square that measures 4 per side. Perimeter = L + L + L + L = 4L = 4*4 = 16 Area = L * L = 4*4 = 16 Although technically they won't be equal since perimeter has units of length, while area has units of squared length.

How do you simplify an expression for the perimeter and area of a rectangle?

Represent the length of the rectangle by L and the width by W. The perimeter = 2L + 2W = 2(L + W). The area = L x W.

How do you find the length and wide of an area if you know the perimeter and an area?

Perimeter = 2*L + 2*W Area = L*W L = Area / W Perimeter = 2*Area / W + 2*W W * Perimeter = 2*Area + 2*W^2 Let A=area, and P= perimeter. 0=2W^2-PW+2A Quadratic formula: W= (P + root(P^2-16A))/4 or W= (P - root(P^2-16A))/4 Once you have W, L is simply A/W. Have fun, and maybe include some numbers to work with next time.

How do you find the perimeter of a right isosceles triangle if you already know its area?

Suppose the lengths of the short sides of the triangle are L Then, by Pythagoras, the third side is sqrt(L2 + L2) = sqrt(2L2) = L*sqrt(2) So the perimeter is L+L+L*sqrt(2) = L*[2+sqrt(2)] Also, if the length of the two short sides is L, the area, A, is 0.5*L*L that is A = 0.5*L2 or L = sqrt(2*A) Combining the two equations, given A, he perimeter is sqrt(2*A)*[2+sqrt(2)] =sqrt(A)*[2*sqrt(2)+2] or 2*sqrt(A)*[1+sqrt(2)] Hope that is correct and helps.

What is the perimeter of a square with an area of 144 in2?

Area = 144 sq inches => Length of side, L = 12 inches => Perimeter = 4*L = 48 inches.
